Take the field with a new lineup of scrappy sandlot sluggers! Starring Luke Perry as a pampered pro athlete who rediscovers his love for the game, The Sandlot: Heading Home is a pulse-pounding and heartwarming tale about losing your ego, putting your friends first...and winning it all! Major league baseball superstar Tommy Santorelli (Perry) racks up great numbers at the plate, but his "me-first" attitude drags his team down. But Tommy gets a second chance when he's knocked unconscious by a pitch and wakes up as a 12-year-old on his childhood playing field...the sandlot! Now, with a greedy developer, Earl Needman, threatening to bulldoze the sandlot unless Tommy's ragtag friends can beat Needman's much-better team, Tommy must decide whether to put his own interests first by switching teams...or stay true to his friends by leading them to their greatest victory yet!

What Parents Need to Know

Parents need to know that The Sandlot 3: Heading Home is a 2007 movie in which a selfish pro baseball player goes back in time to learn the value of teamwork and selfless play. This film features some immature kid behavior: sneaking into a movie theater, breaking into an abandoned house, stealing baseball equipment. There's infrequent mild profanity ("crap," "fat ass"), but what's more prevalent is juvenile name-calling ("turd mouth," "buttfaces," etc.) between the kids. The overweight player is a frequent source of fat-shaming jokes. The lead character faces off against the bully of the rival team, and they engage in a series of back-and-forth insults culminating in the bully making fun of the lead character for having a mom who is dying of cancer. Kids discuss kicking a kid in the "nuts" and "family jewels" as a way to make him regain consciousness. There's the inevitable scene of kid getting hit in the groin by an errant pitch, falling to the ground, and then talking in a "helium" voice. A manager chews chewing tobacco. The larger lesson that Tommy learns is that he doesn't always have to be bigger and better, and that he doesn't have to be a jerk to be successful.
